Paris Jackson, daughter of pop star Michael Jackson, was apparently battling suicidal tendencies for a long time before she slashed her wrist with a kitchen knife on June 5, TMZ reported, after it found her Tumblr page filled with pictures of “death, suicide and cutting,” and several photographs showing teenagers putting guns in their mouths.
Graphic snapshots of girls cutting themselves, with blood splattered all over, also are abundant on Jackson’s page. Most of these pictures are accompanied by disturbing captions that read ‘I f**king hate myself’ and ‘Suicide slice here,’ TMZ noted.
Another post that highlights Jackson’s suicidal tendencies is of a piece of paper with the following words printed on them: "Why did you try to kill yourself?"

“Paris will be staying at least another week, and then she'll be going to a facility for additional care,” a source close to the Jackson family told People.

Jackson is also said to have come to terms with the loss of her father Michael, whose fourth death anniversary falls on Tuesday, with help from experts at the hospital.
“It is the sanctuary she needed to unleash her grief,” a family friend of the Jacksons told Mirror.
